of what his legacy will be. barack obama's first administration was a bit of confusion for many of us in the fight against the war on drugs. i spoke to 1/5 person who said i am not a drug czar. that comes from the wrong mindset. don't call it a drug war because we do not think that is a war against zero people. i thought, great, there is a new sheriff in town. the obama administration and whether it is because of them or because of washington, and i am probably inclined to think it is more the latter, they ended up being not very effective or changing the war on drugs other than changing the language. my fear with that, if you're going to conduct the war, do not conduct it on another name. i am troubled by the way the first term did not manifest serious and meaningful reform in this. but i am hopeful that a new term with the right pressure and with the right sense from this week's -- several victories in several states against the drug war that maybe washington and maybe the obama administration will get the message that the time has come and that we do something that needs to become
to be objective, but it is not right. that is the real issue. why did the obama administration put an actor in a military role, then as the head of the agency evaluate the actions? i think we need a national debate about obama's troop escalation in afghanistan. it was a failure. obama is now committed to withdrawing in 2014. that is generally a good thing, but did we need the true escalation, how well did it work, should we do more? all of that cannot be addressed unless we have a national debate on the policy. am sure general petraeus' issues and other security issues were there, but that is really not the issue here. >> it is interesting. all of this takes place as roger bales is being questioned for the murder of 16 afghans. he is now at fort lewis-mcchord in washington state. >> that is another issue. i am from a military family. i really mind that the events in afghanistan are on stage. we know almost no media reporting on afghanistan. our guys are out there fighting, and if they get killed, it is on page 17. it is not right for a country to be at war unless it is committed to the war.
and they were prepared to do large-scale. we have slowly tried to improve that. to the obama's administration credit he said the high value detainee interrogation group which is an agency group which sends out interrogators' every time a high value is teaching and there is a research unit that stood out to study best practices and spend them out into the training academies thus training practices about interrogation and that's been up and running for a few years and has already -- i know improved training techniques to respect michael skerker is a professor of the u.s. naval academy and the author of this book's an ethics of interrogation. here it is. this is book tv at the u.s. naval academy. >>> professor maochun yu talked with the strategic services in china and the failure and success. this interview which was of the u.s. naval academy in annapolis maryland is a part of booktv college series. it's about 20 minutes.
into the terror attacks in benghazi libya. three americans were killed. the obama administration has been criticized for its explanation for the strike and security warnings that weren't dealt with in advance of the attack. >> new york prosecutors are expected to announce if there's enough evidence to prosecute pedro hernandez. however, there are concerns hernandez who has a history of mental problems is making his confession up. in the meantime jose ramose long considered a prime suspect was released from a pennsylvania prison and then immediately arrested on a megan's law violation after he provided an outdated address. >> flying can be a nightmare for some people but we'll tell you why it was more like a dream for passengers on this new plane. >> speaking of the friendly skies. back with a look at how your workweek forecast is shaping up. first, a federal hot minute. >> good deeds don't often make compelling headlines. i like to think that's because as a society our good deeds are more common and less exceptional. less news worthy than our
companies, obama wants to do it again. what to expect in th next four years from this administration when it comes to managing your money. gerri: today was the first day of gasoline rationing in new york city and long island all because of hurricane sandy. gas rationing. drivers can only fill up every other day were put into place to stop the panic buying and it is borderline anarchy that was going on. long lines that took effect. you see a lot of calves in the line as well. governor andrew cuomo says it could top $50 billion and it would make it that second costliest storm behind hurricane katrina seven years ago. president obama is scheduled to visit the new york area next thursday to see the recovery operation firsthand. the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and over again. and expecting different results. so how does this apply to obama's next four years in office? the green companies backed by your taxpayer dollars? they just grow and grow. many of them are hemorrhaging cash by the day. others have gone bankrupt altogether. our next guest is you can expect
and liberal press takes shots at him and fox news. >> the best is yet to come. >> four more years of an obama administration, a redofor the president to make things right. it will be a media love fest. >> we're intensifying what happened on this. >> jon: cbs news releases more about what he thought about the benghazi attack but is it proof that cbs was helping the white house hide the truth. now the election come and gone, what do americans and late night comics have to look forward to. >> how do you repay me? four more years. >> jon: on the panel this week, judy miller, cal thomas, jim pinkerton and columnist kirsten powers. i'm jon scott. fox too news watch is on right now. >>> i wish all of them. particularly first lady and their daughters. this is time of great challenges for america. [ applause ] >> i pray that the president will be successful in guiding our nation. [ applause ] >> tonight in this election you, the american people reminded us while our world has -- our road has been hard and journey been long we have picked ourselves up. we have fought our way back. we know in our hearts
the second most pressing issue and that is jobs, employment. what should the second obama administration do to encourage job creation? marty? >> i think getting the uncertainty of higher taxes off the table would help. i think corporate tax reform would also help. president obama has said that he would bring the top rate down. the corporate rate down from 35 to 28%. that would get us in line with the the major european economy. that would be a good thing. if we took the next step and went to the international tax rules that every other industrial country has, so-called territorial system, that would encourage american firms to bring back some of the literally more than a trillion dollars of funds that they have sitting outside of the u.s. economy. >> what about the health care legislation? now that president obama has been re-elected, we know obama care, affordable care act is not going anywhere. after all of this debating about it. what impact do you think that will have? >> let me underscore my agreement with marty. we worked together on corporate tax reform in president's economic recove
at it strategically, do you feel that those are the core issues before president obama and this administration and our country going into 2013? um, if not, what would you change, what would you add? >> i -- when i was informed by lori murray about the outcome of the process by which the world affairs councils went through and came up with those six issues, i thought you had it exactly right. i think those are the big issues, and congratulations to you. i think you have them just right. i think there is an overarching issue on top of all of them that in some sense effects and enables all of them x that is if you look at at the national security challenges and the foreign policy challenges we face, i say that the number one challenge is getting our fiscal house in order. getting a handle on the debt, getting a handle on the deficit which are critical in order to get the economy growing again and people back to work. and i think that is the over -- it's certainly the number one domestic challenge. my point is it's always the number one national security challenge. why? because a healthy economy and a hea
's an important issue that affected our views the first obama administration and the second, too. however, i would contend that in most of my conscious lifetime, this is the most coherent the democratic party has been. i mean, compared to the republicans. the republicans are falling part and in complete, you know, clan war. whereas, as you had the previous democratic incumbent being the most impressive advocate for this democratic incumbent. whereas the republicans can't mention the guy who was their previous incumbent. and so i think -- >> george w. >> george w., yeah, who just, you know, didn't come within 1,000 miles of the convention or wasn't mentioned in the speeches. so i think that the democrats, they do have these tensions. but at least they can have some sense of a majority party, which they hadn't thought of themselves as for a long time. being able to say, "okay, how do we address the basically progressive narrative we have that's not just tax cuts and it's not just the top 1%?" >> before this campaign began, i picked up and reread your book you wrote many years ago on the press called
of the obama administration with some trouble. it caused a real rift to open up between the administrations and i would say that now you've got on the a place where it's a reasonably workable relationship but i wouldn't expect there is a lot of love loss between those two. they see each other as partners they have to deal with but don't have a high estimate of each other. he routinely cast gates the united states for it's military operations, for civilian casualties and a variety of other things that the obama white house doesn't take well to those criticisms and the white house has criticized him for his effectiveness and corruption and so on and that doesn't go well. so it's not a great relationship but there have been periods when it was worse during the past four years. host: let's go to a map of the region. you brought up pakistan. some reports saying it's hiding some of these militants that are involved in the upheaval that's going on within the afghanistan population. guest: yes, ever since 9/11 it's been widely appreciated that many of the afghanistan taliban leaders were forced out

] john: that does not mean they're not in trouble and the obama administration had more dispensaries. >> actually the clinton administrations started to raid merit -- medil marijuana dispensaries that became the goal. john: even after saying we would not. >> exactly. it is of major issue not about drug legalization but can the states set policies that affect their residence or give over to the government? the supreme court ruled that federal laws matter but it is a buy 10 of the apple to have ramifications far beyond mere one of legalization is. >> of the% of americans are in favor of legalizing it is moving very, very fast. john: it past some of the 55/45. colorado and washington past solidly. washington said the levels driving under the influence. >> that was controversial. it was meant to come up with a way to let people spheres no. >> abell take your blood. >> washington state has about one year to figure out the technical implementation and colorado has six months. john: the colorado governor oppose this and said the voters have spoken. i thought they were for individual freedom
votes, you could have bad times, scandal and in the second obama administration and some moderate republican could come along and say, this is my time. chris: the question is coming up later in this show, that very question. let me ask you about this. a pathway to citizenship. >> i think they absolutely do, and i think they'll be running to immigration reform. i think republicans are going to be embracing it. i think it's going to end up passing with 90 votes in the senate. chris: this is going to be like social security once was. >> absolutely. i think republicans definitely want to get that behind them. it's right that mitt romney did get 57 million people but the trajectory for republicans is not -- the trend is not in that direction. chris: republicans know it too. we are a mixed bag ethnically. when we come back, scoops and predictions from the notebooks chris: tell me something i don't know. >> in a belated gesture of transparency, romney's going to release his tax returns.

, the obama administration here in the northern district of california. welcome to the stop bullying summit. i'm a federal prosecutor so it may seem odd that here we are talking about bullying and we asked all of you to be here and i want to explain the origin of that and why this happened. you people, everybody in this room, has been involved in this issue and is doing incredible work on this issue and we were so honored to be a part of it and to meet with all of you and to speak with you about it. the origin is that as the united states attorney, the administration wants me, wants all the united states attorneys, to go out into the community. it's actually a very different role for the united states attorney is envisioned by this administration. this administration, the president, attorney general holder, they want the u.s. attorneys to go out into the attorney to talk to the communities in our district to understand what the issues are and challenges are and to do what we can to help, to convene meetings, to do whatever we can to help on behalf of the administration. and as part of tha
. subsequent to this we found out of day one, the obama administration, the intel community, even knew it wasn't video, it was the terror attack. why would petraeus do it? was there something held over his head where he said go out there and say video? otherwise we'll blow it wide open. that is a theory. >> greg: obama should arrest the director of "fatal attraction" and say it caused her to go after paula broadwell. maybe petraeus didn't want to say certain things in the testimony. >> dana: he finally said, if broadwell had the final interview the week before the election. can you manual wha imagine the t the f.b.i. who had to con front david petraeus. what it's like to say by the way, sir, we know you've been having an apair with the biographer, because there is another woman upset about it. i wonder if he knew all along. i don't believe he was given a polygraph test when he went to afghanistan, running afghanistan to being the c.i.a. director. i'm not sure if it's out of line, but it seems to me a problem. >> kimberly: there should be in terms of how they hand this, the protocol to go in an
candid over the three years of the obama administration about his weaknesses, his failures and his flaws. but a few months ago, you wrote that you saw obama improving and you thought he would be a better second term president. why? >> part of my argument is that everybody fails in the first term as president because it's too big a job. and so, you sort of reveal what the weakness is and what particular lack a president has. and we've seen some of those with president obama. i think one way in which he'll certainly be different is that he knows who he is dealing with now. the first two years of the administration, he thought that they were going to be able to make sort of a split the loaf deal with the current republican party. and they weren't interested in that. so i think he will have a firmer approach from the get-go. he now doesn't have to worry about reelection, as we all know. i think he's become more sophisticated as a judge of executive talent around him and just sort of knows what he is doing. you know, he spent four years making hard decisions, after no executive experience, es
exchanges. the obama administration can't just ignore republican ideas, they have to have a conversation about ways to fix the obamacare legislation or reform it so it actually will work. right now it is slated not to work and be a bigger mess. cheryl: 2014 is not very far away. the states are not prepared with these exchanges. what are you hearing? >> i am hearing that. one of the reasons is the obama administration was waiting until after the election to go forward with the regulations telling states how to go forward. politico has a piece talking about how there will be the regulations not only affecting the states and how they run their exchanges but also affecting businesses and specifically the insurers and how they can prepare products that will be salable, so waiting on the regulations of a political purpose will not help getting the law implemented in a clear and clean way. cheryl: want to ask about the issue of medical device makers and that new tax coming, that hit a lot of stocks last week. we watched it on the business side, but what do you make of that? >> obviously a disap
said if you look at states where obama administration bombarded women with messages, you saw much bigger gaps. >> chris: senator bayh, you know, it's interesting because i was thinking of 2004 as welch pendulum swings back and forth. after 2004 when bush had issues, and he still won, democrats were disspirited. obviously four years later they came roaring back. what do republicans need to do? >> two elections i'm thinking of, chris, number one, four years ago 2008 when some parts of the democratic party said this is a vote for a new progressive era and left-leaning government. it turns out that wasn't quite the case. our party needs to be modest in the mandate we take away from it. we need togone from progressive center out. then 1988 from the republicans' perspective. democrat just lost two elections in a row to ronald reagan. what did we do? we nominated michael dukakis who is a fine man but a liberal from massachusetts. it took three beatings for to us realize you have to make common cause of moderates. that is the internal struggle the republican have to go through. true to pr
i said, if you look more at the states where they -- the obama administration bombarded women with messages, you saw a much bigger gap. >> chris: it is interesting, because i was thinking of 2004 as we'll, the pendulum swings back and forth and after the 2004, which bush obviously had a lot of issues and, still won, the democrats were disspirited and four years later came roaring back, what do republicans need to do. >> two issues i'm thinking of, number one, four years ago, 2008, when some parts of the democratic party said this was a vote for a new progressive era and more left-leaning government and turned out that that was not quite the case and our party needs to be fairly modest then mandate we take away from this and governor from the center-out, progressive center, one and two, i'm thinking of 1988 from the republicans' perspective. democrats had lost two elections in a row to ronald reagan. and what did we do? nominated michael dukakis, a fine man but a liberal from massachusetts and the internal struggle republicans will go through, they have to be true to their prin
gears and talk about jobs. the obama administration repeatedly asked defense contractor not to comply with t with it and warn they might be laid off in advance of cuts and of course recently boeing laid off 30% of its management force and other companies are expected to do the same. do you think the president played politics with these job cuts? >> i don't know if he played politics, but i know this. if you understand defense appropriations that that $600 billion in the sequestration, most of it is in research and development and procurement. only 15% of any procurement contract or research and development is spent in the first year. so the immediate cuts from this don't have very much impact. second, when people talk about jobs, the defense and aerospace association said there would be a million jobs lost if that $600 billion went into effect. you know what? s.e., there's only 3.5 million bornste jobs in defense in the aerospace industry, that including 757s. they're going to lose 33% in one year of their entire work force because of a 10% cut in defense? weren't a job welfare progra
this that he was actually supporting mitt romney. as you know ge gets a lot of perks if the obama administration wins, solar, green energy and stuff, he's the chairman of president jobs council, he's going to be at this thing. sort of the leader of wall street if we had a spokesman would obviously be dimon. dimon was extremely critical of the president, particularly behind the scenes. he basically told people because he's on the federal reserve board, he does not give, you know, in kind contributions but i mean all his body movement was like do whatever you can to elect mitt romney. this guy is bad for business based on dodd frank and some of the other things that the president has done. so jamie is not on the list. like i said the closest you've got is the gentleman from american express. this thing is going to occur wednesday. as we know, there's what, how many days left before the fiscal cliff hits, i thought i saw some graphic that said -- cheryl: there's a countdown, a calendar. >> why is the fiscal cliff a big thing? why does wall street, big business don't like it? they don
one more term. he has promised robust oversight of the obama administration. >> i am sure he has. and speaking of oversight, isn't that one of the few places on the senate side where there might be a new -- sorry. >> tom carp ser set to take over. leiberman is retiring. the ranking republican is term limited out as we were talking about with the house votes. senate republicans have the same rule. he has been very serious. he has a very talented group of people working for him on that committee doing investigations and what not. and carper, i actually think, that they will get along pretty well and both will likely be focused on the government affairs part of the committee. not that they will ignore homeland security. i am sure they won't. but i think they have an interest in that area. >> top seats changing hands. >> the budget committee. conrad is retiring. patty murray is up for the seat. we say she is the favorite for it, and i agree. but i do think there is a possibility that she does not take it. last time i talked to her people they said she hasn't made a decision yet. you
senior officials in the obama administration looking to leave for the second term. secretary of state lilg healthing hillary rodham clinton and leon panetta both expected to depart. likewise, the president might have to find replacement for treasury secretary timothy geithner and attorney general eric holder if they decide that they, too, would like to leave. toipt bring in our white house correspondent briana keiller to talk about just more on the president's plate here. how does this add to what he needs to get done starting in the next year? >> it really adds to it. i mean, you've got this issue, obviously, that comes after any re-election. the turnover of the cabinet, suzanne, but just think of the big plate that this is being added to. first offer, the fiscal cliff. that is obviously the biggest issue that president obama has to deal with. you're looking at tax cuts that expire at the very end of december, and then those spending cuts that are set to kick in on january 2nd. as he works, obviously, figuring out the new faces on his cabinet. he has his anything raugs on january 20t
, there was some covert action program going on in libya. i think the agency and the obama administration are trying to figure out how to deal with that. it could include some very embarrassing information related to the program. we don't know exactly what it is, it could be related to syria, it could be related to, perhaps, the militia group that carried out the benghazi attack. so these are important questions that need to be answered, and by sidelining petraeus in this way through his resignation, certainly it's going to be harder to get at those questions at least for independent investigators, say, on capitol hill. shannon: he may not testify this week as was planned, but i talked with a number of lawmakers this weekend who said they do intend, if necessary, to subpoena him, even in his roam as a private citizen -- role as a private citizen now. do you think he'll resist it or a welcome it to testify to something that maybe the investigation didn't want him to talk about publicly? >> well, the question is not so much whether he will testify, it's what he will say when he testifies an
policy issues facing the obama administration. what happens in the deadly attack in libya. joining us this morning deputy white house editor for politico. good morning. good to see you. >> good morning. >> whenever we see stories like this come out, scandal really, those details leak out. what do we know? >> he was having an affair. the woman involved was his buyographer and appears to been prompted into threatening e-mails he stoent another woman who was working down in florida and that there was some level of threat that she had given that had been so great the fbi started investigating her e-mail and in investigating her e-mail found all of these messages back and forth that made them know there was an affair going on. >> and this was quite some time ago? >> that's right. we also know in terms of the timing on this that the fbi was investigating it over the summer but they did not inform anyone outside of the fbi until this past week the director of national intelligence was told about it and the white house was told about it on wednesday and president obama was told on thursday. >

said a few weeks ago that i thought that based on the evidence we had then, this was the obama administration's watergate. this gets deeper and deeper every day. there is a report by jennifer griffin and adam housley on fox news.com that miss broadwell, the mistress of general petraeus, allegedly told a group in denver that the reason that there was an attack on the c.i.a. consulate and annext was that libyan militia members were being held there. now, if that's true, that puts a lie to all it this motion about a video. >> steve: where did she find that out? >> the story also reports that some congressional members were considering charging general petraeus, head of the c.i.a., with perjury, but withholding judgment until he testified before congress this week. >> steve: i read in the "wall street journal" this morning that apparently when they approached her and they said, what's going on here, she gave hem her computer and apparently there were classified documents on her computer. but petraeus said she didn't get them from me. >> she denied it. and he denied it. but someone
